Okay, what we are trying to provide here are media recommendations that remind you all people of all sizes are amazing and flawed and human. We want to give you a long list of media that reminds you that it is normal to be any size.
But... We are also making a documentary because most media images of people in larger bodies are demonizing. So, this is tricky.
Listen... what we have here is a list not 100% perfect representations. This is a mixed bag with problematic moments in all of the above, but as it stands, these are our favorites.

What you see here are our recommendations when it comes to great body positive reading. We've broken this down into four categories.
First, Non-fiction: Fun, Smart and Empowering - these are books that would help anyone on their journey to body positivity. Some are silly, some are serious, some are memoirs and some are guides. All are enjoyable to read.
The second category is Non-fiction: Academic, Diet Culture and Social Justice - these are equally worth reading, but the focus here is research and study of a particular topic. These books are invaluable when it comes to explaining why all bodies deserve respect.
